  1. Great, simple instructions but a bit too fast.

  2. Thank you for making this amazing video it really helped me.

  3. How can I instead add Google Translate to my site and have the pop up prompt only trigger when it recognizes a non-English language browser?
    This was built into my old Google Sites website but not in WordPress.

  4. thank you for this! what ever you do, do not use the plugin from SURSTUDIO ! their service is crap

  5. Great example, but I'm having issues with the widget. I'm a native Dutchy, but when I translate my website to Dutch, it's giving me faulty grammar. Is there a way to edit the translation myself?

    Thanks in advance!

  6. Thanks for uploading video on google translate plugin for wordpress. Now sure it will help my user to read content easily in their languages. And it will easy for me to grab foreign user for Myinfostake blog by implementing google translator.

  7. Great example ! Google translates "Home" into "Maison" (= "house"). You do NOT want your readers to view a google-translated version of your website, it will look ridiculous and unprofessional.

  8. Thank you that really helped me with my translation issue.

  9. how can I install Google Translate into word press and have it only pop up as a floating widget if the visitors browser is set to a language other than English?
